Two years ago Gallim Dance made their Joyce Theater debut with Andrea Miller’s Wonderland. In early 2011 they performed at Dance Theater Workshop (now New York Live Arts), and then spent much of the year in residence at the JCC Manhattan, performing there while also touring across the US and abroad. In 2012, they relocated to a new home in Brooklyn. In a nutshell, they’ve been busy. Starting on June 8th, they return to the Joyce as part of Gotham Dance Festival with the world premiere of SIT, KNEEL, STAND, Miller’s newest evening-length work. SIT, KNEEL, STAND deconstructs the border between harmony and chaos. Not much else is known about the work (though you can catch a glimpse in the company’s preview videos), but I’m sure it will feature Gallim’s relentless physicality and emotional rawness.
Tickets to SIT, KNEEL, STAND can be purchased at the Joyce’s website or by calling 212.242.0800. Performances are June 8th through 10th.
